    Default Wiring cost

    Anyone able to give an idea of cost to wire up a shopping container to use as an office. Has to be safe (obviously), and able to run a 2.5kw air con and internal lights and a couple of GPOs. It's a 20footer and will be positioned about 10 metres from the power board outside.

    If's and but's in your question.

    Will the present board AND installation (semi rural) carry the extra load ?

    Is 10 metres underground or temporary above ground ? as in who does the digging ?

    Is the install to be run in conduit on the metal frame or is the container framed up ?

    How far does the sparkie have to travel ?

    Answer these questions then send the info off to a local spark and ask for an estimate.

    Fair points.

    No idea on the first one.

    Trench will be dug ready for sparky to place conduit and wire in.

    Container will have framed interior walls ready for lining.

    Travel time won't be great so can be excluded from any estimate provided on here.

    Had hoped that anyone else who may have already done this to a container might have responded.

    I didn't go into exact details because every job is different. Just after an idea of potential costs.

    You would be better off getting all your specifications on paper and get a number of quotes. My daughter got 3 quotes to get rid of a large tree and they ranged from $1500 to $3500 so you should get a number of quotes.
